Altitude Hockey Camp Experience

Dear Mr. Bazin,

I am writing you to commend you and the staff of the Altitude Hockey Camp for holding such a great prospect camp. It was truly a wonderful experience from both a student-athlete and parent perspective.

The limited amount of teams permitted gave focus to those individual players when it came to the on ice practices. The lecture/information sessions were very informative and sets this camp apart.

The amount of time and dedication shown to the potential college hockey players and their families was very sincere. You really can tell and get the feel that the staff was there for these players and their families. All the staff we very approachable and extremely knowledgeable when it came to questions about next steps to playing within the college system.

It is a camp I would highly recommend to any player and their parent searching for this type of exposure.

Yours Truly,

Without the guidance of Norm's camp I wouldn't have had the knowledge of what grades I needed to become a college player. Subsequently, I was able to bring my average up, got the opportunity to reach college and was fortunate enough to sign a pro contract with Anaheim out of Colorado College.

Dear Mr. Bazin,

My experience with the Altitude Hockey has been nothing short of amazing, the level of competitiveness and coaching staff have come unmatched to any other hockey camp I have attend. Organically this camp was exceptional, the schedule was very easy to follow and there was no problem knowing where to be. The seminars were very informative and helped to answer most of the questions I had previously had about collegiate hockey.

I highly enjoyed the pre game practices in the morning. The drills were very fast paced and high tempo, led by great experienced on ice coaches.

My biggest highlight of this camp had to be getting some exposure to the collegiate coaches, and to meet and hear some of their expectations on us players. My goal of playing NCAA hockey were heightened by this camp and will hopefully assist in some NCAA opportunities.

I thank you very much for letting me attend the Altitude Hockey Camp and I hope to join you next year.

Also wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and the other coaches for coming up to Okotoks and putting on the camp. The experience and confidence gained helped Michael have a great main camp with the Okotoks Oilers. Regardless, it has pushed Michael to another level which will show up in minor midget if he returns to that team. The experience gained at your camp, where he now knows he can skate and compete at that level, was invaluable. For the 15s that attended your camp, the consensus among the parents is that the Altitude camp was the one of the best camps attended this summer and early fall. Thanks again. We look forward to attending again next summer. Please keep us on your distribution/invite list. If you need any other information just let me know.

Hi Norm,

I just wanted to thank you for the camp. Josh had a great time and the competition was excellent preparation for his Sherwood Park Crusaders tryouts this week. It was also a great opportunity to learn more about the US college path in hockey. Thank you once again and we look forward to next year’s camp.
